Since 2015, Internet Archives have been preserving old classic titles and in 2016 even added titles from the Windows 3.1 era. However, this seems to be the biggest batch of additions ever, with over 2500 games from the MS-DOS era added. All you need to do to play all these classics for free is head on over to this link and play the game you want.
There are some absolutely classic titles from the Oregon Trail to the original Sim City, Prince of Persia and a lot more, 2577 more to be exact. You can play all these games for free and the latest highlighted additions include the likes of Street Fighter 2, The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard, The Lost Vikings, King’s Quest 1 and 2 and a whole lot more. You can even play the highly-rated Street Rod if you’ve ever heard about it but never got a chance to play it.
Jason Scott from Internet Archives explains that:

Since our initial announcement in 2015, we’ve added occasional new games here and there to the collection, but this will be our biggest update yet, ranging from tiny recent independent productions to long-forgotten big-name releases from decades ago.[/perfectpullquote]
Not every game runs perfectly and there are some issues here and there, especially slow downloads on CD-ROM games. However, it is a great way to relive the classics.
